Join the LWV St. Paul Morning Book Club for discussion about The Second Founding: How the Civil War and Reconstruction Remade the Constitution by Eric Foner. All are invited even if you haven't read the book. Please e-mail Mary (mgp33@msn.com) to be added to the e-mail list to receive updates.

Traces the arc of the three foundational Reconstruction amendments from their origins in antebellum activism and adoption amidst intense postwar politics to their virtual nullification by narrow Supreme Court decisions and Jim Crow state laws. Today these amendments remain strong tools for achieving the American ideal of equality, if only we will take them up.
